in my opinion, every gun person should have a handgun, a .22 rifle, centerfire rifle, & shotgun.
QFT right there...^^^^^^^^^

Unless you just hate your handgun, DO NOT sell it!!! It's a buyer's market right now and you'll undoubtedly take a bath on it...

A good shotty won't break the bank one bit and is mandatory if you want to call yourself a gun owner...

My advice is get one that is compatible with both shot and slugs...I bought mine 10 years ago and wasn't educated enough to know that (Mossberg 835) and it won't shoot slugs...

Keep us posted and post some pics if you can...

I agree with the masses. Just in this short amount of time of being a member, I have learned that when trading at the LGS, the customer will take a big hit on their trade. Everyone should have at least one shotgun in their collection for fun and HD. My advice to you is keep your Springfield, and save up for your shotgun. Another option for you is once you know what you want, go to your LGS and lay it away. Most in my area do 25% down and six months. My LGS does 25% down and no time limit, but you must make regular payments to keep your layaway.

ALWAYS own a shotgun, in my opinion it is your most versatile gun.

If I can have only one gun it would be a 12 gauge pump shotgun! Mine is the Remington 870 the best selling shotgun in history!

I'm looking at the remington 870 express 26 inch barrel. Beautiful shotgun.

If you're looking for a multipurpose, get a combo pkg. It will come with a shotgun barrel and a rifled barrel.
